AIMS presents IP Oktoberfest 2020

The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has published the presentation schedule for IP Oktoberfest 2020, a live, interactive, virtual event for broadcast and pro AV professionals to be held Sept. 29 – Oct.1, 2020. The event will highlight the industry’s significant progress toward an all-IP ecosystem supporting today’s real-world media productions.

AIMS is a non-profit trade alliance that fosters the adoption of one set of common, ubiquitous, standards-based protocols for interoperability over IP in the media and entertainment, and professional audio/video industries. 

With the virtuel event and the combo of IP and Oktoberfest AIMS will highlight the significant progress made toward an all-IP ecosystem that supports today’s real-world media productions. Live presentations throughout the event will demonstrate how the SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards and the AMWA NMOS technology stack are improving media workflows for large and small deployments. The newly proposed IPMX set of open standards and specifications also will be a featured topic.

“As a dynamic, real-time event, IP Oktoberfest 2020 will offer informative presentations with plenty of opportunity for discussion,” said AIMS Chairman of the Board Mike Cronk. “We have built an impressive presentation lineup, with experts from leading technology suppliers and forward-looking media organizations sharing their insights and experiences. We’re confident that any operation moving toward IP will benefit from the remarkable knowledge and expertise our presenters bring to the table.”

Running daily from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT, IP Oktoberfest 2020 is not a webinar. This live event will provide participants with numerous opportunities for education, interaction, and networking in a dynamic, online environment that makes it easy to move freely between meeting areas — including a live presentation stage, virtual pub, and meeting and networking areas.
